In response to: Pushing Pedals: ‘Nothing Compares to the Simple Pleasure of a Bike Ride’

Lockdown has been wonderful to discover our country lanes and to find ways to get around “off-piste”.

Perhaps this column could be used too for people to share tips for interesting routes around the villages.

If I’m allowed to make a recommendation here, it’s for the Bike Project charity in the Woking Road Depot, entrance next to the Surrey Advertiser building on the other side of the river bridge, in Stoke is an absolute gem.

For the past year, our bikes have been tweaked, renovated, given spare parts of all kinds, revived and resurrected with the help and enthusiasm of Jonathan and his team.

They are amazing guys and over and above helpful and willing to go the second mile in getting you back on the road. They will sort out your bike or get you a secondhand reconditioned stead from their huge collection of donated bikes. It is definitely worth dropping in.

    It’s great to hear Jane Hepburn’s kind comments, and that Bike Project Surrey is keeping her on the move.

    For those that don’t know, we are a charity that trains people of all ages from school to retirement with learning needs, by refurbishing and repairing donated cycles, with the aim of getting those who want to a formal qualification to open doors to working in the cycling industry. We sell affordable refurbished cycles and repair and improve cycles to part-fund the project.

    Gus Ferenczy is the director of the Bike Project Surrey
